CHI TOWN STAND UP!!! It’s your girl MidWest Melly serving up your biweekly dose of dopeness with #MIDWESTBEST. This time we do it real big for the Ladies with a very skillfull Southside female artist: Crystal La’Juene. Her sound has been compared to many legendary queens of hip hop such as: Queen Latifah, MC Lyte and Salt N Pepa. What makes Crystal stand out is the way she expresses herself through music as an intelligent and strong woman. You have to respect a female who is as pretty as she is gritty; she truly represents a real Chicago woman!

Crystal La’Juene is a master at selecting talented producers as I’ve heard from her previous work with homie DJ Herc on tracks like “What’s Happening”. Grant Parks is no exception to the rule. Grant Parks has already worked with Hip Hop Heavyweights such as: Malik Yusef, Rhymefest, Sadat X and Grand Puba (Brand Nubian) and Pharoahe Monch to name a few. It’s without a doubt a dynamic producer/emcee pairing.

Like This” is a track included on a Grant Parks project with Vudu Spellz cleverly named “Hip Hop – The Rebirth (Real MCs Real Skillz)” mixtape. The track speaks on Crystal’s ability to lyrically “flex” on the competition.

“On the mental, killing the instrumentals, style be influential, simple but complex. Study long as you want, however don’t wan’ test. High frequency penetrating your vortex.” – Crystal La’Juene

I really dig the video which highlights the simplicity of the notebook paper background in contrast to Crystal’s complex lyrical breakdown. It helps the message to really resonate with the viewer and makes her wordplay the main focus. I wouldn’t call it a #MIDWESTBEST if I didn’t “Like This”, but press play and find out for yourself!

In addition to being a talented singer, songwriter and rapper, Crystal also is a barber/braid/loc stylist and makes jewelry, crochets and is the owner of Looks & Style located at: 332 E. 75th Street in Chicago, IL.
